YORK City Knights have added more firepower to their 2020 Betfred Championship pack with the signing of James Green from Bradford Bulls.

The towering prop forward featured prominently for Bradford Bulls in their 2019 Championship campaign.

He started his career at Hull KR and made 81 Super League appearances for the Robins between 2012 and 2016.

Green had further spells in Super League at Leigh Centurions in 2017 before moving to Castleford Tigers in 2018.

The 28-year-old joined Bradford in 2019.

To date he has made 149 career appearances and has scored five tries.

Knights head coach James Ford said: “James will strengthen our forward pack with his experience and metres.

"I’m excited to work with James and facilitate his drive to get back to his very best.

“I’d like to thank the efforts of our supporters and specifically squad builder for their hard work and continuing commitment, which is enabling us to plan and build for what will hopefully be another successful season.”

Green added: “I’m looking forward to getting started with a club that’s clearly going in the right direction on and off the field.

"It’s an exciting time for all involved and I can’t wait to be a part of that in 2020.

“Having met with Fordy and seen the plan he has laid out for next year made my decision to join the Knights an easy one.

"I can’t wait to get in for pre-season with everyone and begin that journey of hopefully taking the club one step further.”
